Shanghai Propaganda Poster Art Museum

One of the most interesting museums I went lately is the Shanghai Propaganda Poster Art Centre. Hidden in a basement the world of Chinese Propaganda in the Mao era opens up to you.

I bought a comic book there from 1957. The cover shows an interesting view on the world at that time. The title is “Two Worlds”.

To find out what the western guy is protesting about, go to the special page that has been added with more info about the Shanghai Propaganda Poster Art Centre.

    Nice item on the propaganda poster museum. I just co-wrote a book on Chinese posters which attempts to approach the material with some respect and historical context rather than just as bizarre kitsch. Check it out - Chinese Posters: Art from the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, Chronicle Books, 2007. All the posters are cataloged and available on line at the attached URL.
